Grazin' in the Grass: The Best of Hugh Masekela + The Best Of Miriam Makeba & The Skylarks

Two more South African albums: a best-of from the first Miriam Makeba vocal group, The Skylarks, and a collection from her countrymate, colleague and former husband, trumpeter Hugh Masekela, who scored his biggest hit in the 60s with a highlife/jazz fusion instrumental "Grazin' In The Grass". The first album has recent rerecordings of "Grazing in the grass" and some of his other hits, Still Grazing culls from the Uni and Blue Thumb labels (1966-1973) and includes the original versions.
